Unit Director celebrated as part of MRC centenary

posted on: Jun 20, 2013

Sally Macintyre has been a leader in the field of Social and Public Health research in the UK and beyond for more than 30 years. She has made particular contributions in the field of social inequalities in health and is a proponent of using robust methods to evaluate the impact of social interventions on health. Her contribution to science was recently recognised by being one of 12 women to be given a Suffrage Science award.

On Monday 17th June, Sally’s contribution to research and policy was celebrated at a one day meeting held in the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. In a series of presentations, experts and close colleagues of Sally reflected on changes in debates around health inequalities over the last 30 years; the role Sally has played in these; and the challenges that are a priority for the coming decade.

Contributors included: David Armstrong, Peter Craig, Steve Cummins, Ana Diez Roux, Andrew Fraser, Hilary Graham, Graham Hart, Kate Hunt, Catherine Law, Mark Petticrew, Steve Platt, Karien Stronks, and Sally Macintyre.


Kate Hunt opens the event with some personal reflections on Sally.
